Grabbing a mooring ball in the BVI.
Had my wife doing the driving on our chartered 42 ft catamaran; my first time on the bow.
I leaned over with the boat hook firmly in hand, picked up that line on the first fish, and the rubber handgrip neatly parted from the boathook - the weight of the line did a nice job of shooting the boathook down into the water.
Would have been funny, but it was our only boathook - and we'd just raced forward to grab the last mooring ball in the field (no anchoring permitted in the area).
